Danish billionaire Henrik Thorvaldsen obsesses over the terrorist incident in Mexico City that left seven dead including his son. He cannot move on as the brain behind the assault has remained free although he now knows who he is.

Henrik sends apparently fired Secret Service Agent Sam Collins to break into the Copenhagen bookstore owned by former United States Department of Justice (DOJ) operative Cotton Malone. The grieving Dane hopes to obtain Malone's cooperation to help bring down the killer Lord Ashby who has ties to a financial cartel the Paris Club planning an assault on the global economy for avaricous gains that the DOJ hopes to counter. The starting point in the plan is a plot to destroy a landmark that could kill hundreds; war is usury profitable for the finance community.

With terrific ties to Napoleon in Corsica and an exciting action packed story line, the latest Cotton Malone thriller (see The Charlemagne Pursuit) is a fun read. Filled with twists and over the top of the Eiffel Tower villains, fans will enjoy Malone's newest retirement caper mindful of War, Inc and If Looks Could Kill although not a satire. Malone teams up with a grieving angry father and a First Amendment conspiracy buff to thwart the latest capitalist plot to have the masses finance war with money and blood so the affluent can make outrageous profits.

Paris just okay.

This book was okay but lacked the excitement and thrilling aspects of previous Malone series books. I will still read the sixth installment and hope we see more of the previous characters than we did in this book. Where was Vitt?

    OK read

    I felt like this was the weakest of the Cotton Malone series. Slow to start and story line was mired in angst for the first 150 pages. Hate to sound critical but the others in this series have been so full of excitement, fast-paced and interesting. My opinion only.

    Painful!

    This book was so hard to finish......
    It drug on & on & on.
    It begun to be interesting by disk 5 & the book had 6 disks.
    It is a disapponting product in this series.
    Not sure I'll continue w/his next.

    Highly disappointed!

    I've read all of Steve Berry's books and this one is my least favorite. The plot is disjointed and not that intriquing. The new character, Sam, is flat and not appealing. Overall, a somewhat boring book. Look forward to Steve Berry's next book. Hopefully, it will match the caliber of his previous books.
